The Slight Edge is a way of thinking, a way of processing information that enables you to make the daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire. Learn why some people make dream after dream come true, while others just continue dreaming and spend their lives building dreams for someone else. It's not just another self-help motivation tool of methods you must learn in order to travel the path to success. It shows you how to create powerful results from the simple daily activities of your life, by using tools that are already within you.

In this 8th anniversary edition you'll read not only the life-changing concepts of the original book, but also learn what author Jeff Olson discovered as he continued along the slight edge path: the Secret to Happiness and the Ripple Effect.

This edition of The Slight Edge isn't just the story, but also how the story continues to create life-altering dynamics—how a way of thinking, a way of processing information, can impact daily choices that will lead you to the success and happiness you desire. The Slight Edge is “the key” that will make all the other how-to books and self-help information that you read, watch and hear actually work.

User Review  - Mark_Oszoli - LibraryThing

This book is essentially a self -help and self-development book of a different kind. Instead of affirmations and meditative exercises this book shows you how little things you do or consequently do not do on a daily basis can change your life in a major way through the long term. Read full review

Great book that reminds the reader it is the little things that make the difference over the long run. Jeff Olsen refers to it as "mastering the mundane." Though the book contains many sales references, all can be applied to multiple personal and professional aspects of life. Highly recommend.
